Mark Ramsey: Private Lessons

Private Lessons - May 10, 2010

I offer private lessons for piano, drums, and guitar in the Austin, Texas area. 

I have been teaching private and group lessons for over 20 years in the Austin area. As a music major at the University of Texas I studied piano and music theory and composition. I have studied a variety of styles and I have played professionally throughout Texas in several bands over the last 30 years. On occasions I have traveled to Nashville to perform in recording industry showcases.

I teach a balance between a traditional, classical approach and a more modern approach that includes an understanding of theory and contemporary styles. My students learn correct technique using scales and technique exercises. But they also learn chord construction and basic theory. This develops a broader understanding of music in general.

I have several years of experience teaching young people. I have a BA in History and I have taught History and Geography on the secondary level. I am active in my church where I lead worship and teach younger musicians how to fit into a group. In this capacity I have helped worship teams and youth groups from several churches in the Austin area hone their skills.

Please feel free to call me to discuss the possibilities of music instruction for your child; even if you are unsure and just need some advice.
